Its been a while since I've put up posts on our blog, but I've just seen a beautiful quilt on Ricky Tims facebook page. Here is the link: 

Ricky Timms and London, England

The ballerina quilt is stunning!

It's a source of inspiration! Glenda , your fabrics would work perfectly in a quilt like that.


  1. Have to agree Janet - it is a stunning quilt!

  2. That's Ferret's quilt.

    Ferret is a U.K. quilter and is well known for her nudes. The Brits and the Europeans haven't any problems with them but I know that the Americans were very worried about the last nude she did- which by the way was wonderful.(See "Nude with a Rope" )
    There is a video about her work which I will put up on the blog.
